Well... I had my eyes on a Springfield, but I couldn't pass up the deal I got on my slightly used Remington R1. It isn't as flashy as I set out to buy, but all in all I am pleased with my purchase. If I ever get to the range, I will pass along my experiences.

"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
~John F. Kennedy
Welcome to the wonderful world of 1911s. The one thing I love about the is the upgrading to your liking. One minor suggestion I can offer is if the grip keeps on biting ur hand after a couple of rounds...look into an extended beaver tail for it. You won't regret it and ur firing hand will thank u.
